Like a house, a car has an air filter that needs regular replacement for your health. But when and how do you replace your car’s air filter?

Why Cabin Air Filter Replacement is Important?

A vehicle’s air filter helps keep outside particulates from reaching the passenger compartment when the heating/AC system is on. A clean air filter also helps the defroster work more effectively.

When You Should Get Cabin Air Filter Replacement?

Generally, the cabin air filter needs replacement every 12,000-30,000 miles. Your car’s owner’s manual gives the best replacement schedule for the specific vehicle. Some drivers like to replace the cabin air filter in early spring and fall before seasonal allergies hit.

If you regularly drive in places with poor air quality, you should replace your air filter sooner.

The Cabin Air Filter Replacement Process

Step 1:

Find the filter. In most cars, the filter is accessible through a panel in the back of the glovebox. Some vehicles require the glovebox to be removed for filter access. On others, the filter is accessible through the hood.

Step 2:

Remove the filter and all debris. Note the orientation of the filter. Be careful not to allow any debris to fall into the blower motor.

Step 3:

Replace the filter, access panel, and glovebox.

Cost of Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Cabin air filters usually cost $15-$50, depending on quality. Labor is normally $36-$46, depending on how accessible the air filter is. Contact us to confirm the specific price for your vehicle.

Questions to Ask Your Service Technician

Drivers should ask their service technician which filter is the right shape for their car.

Signs of a Quality Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Once the air filter is replaced, the vehicle’s heating/AC unit should be able to blow stronger air. If the windshield fogs up, the vehicle should be able to clear it more easily.

If the heating/AC unit in the car makes an unusual noise, debris may have fallen in the blower during replacement. It is important to have this debris cleared so the blower does not need to be replaced.

Caring for Your Vehicle After Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Even with proper care, the filter will need regular replacement. The best way to extend the time between service intervals is to ensure the interior of the vehicle is clean and that spills are wiped up instantly. Also, ensuring the integrity of the black weather stripping around the doors can help air quality.
